Whiner's Club Meeting in progress

If I were going to take a yoga class and learn some basics with a lot of tiny, hipster bendy people what would I wear?

I don't own any yoga pants.

I can't wear a body suit, I have belly rolls. And yes that's more a won't than a can't but it applies.

Harrumph! I can't go to yoga to get fit until I'm fit enough to dress for yoga!

    there are cheap comfy pants at old navy. i live in them and they would be perfect and i think they cost all of 15 dollars maybe.
    hope you're well.

    Oh, no, no, no. You don't get to bail on yoga classes on FASHION grounds! Seriously - comfy pants and a tee shirt. I TEACH yoga, for crying out loud, and I'm not sure *I* own 'yoga pants.' The thermostat is busted in our studio, too, so it's FRICKIN cold in there, so I've been wearing woobie pants and long sleeved tees. Essentially? My pajamas....

  3. I side with Chili on this: Wear what's comfortable. I taught t'ai chi for a long time in pajama pants and a sweatshirt. People wondered why I didn't wear a gi and my reply was always to ask what was more important. If you're there to be fit, be fit. If you're there to look good, wear heels and a push-up bra.

    Oooo, that's an image!

    Seriously, though, the only people who will judge you for what you wear to a yoga session are the posers, and you don't have time for posers.

  4. I'm agreeing with everything they say. I wear leggings and a t. or sometimes just those "around the house fuzzy pj bottom things" from walmart. What I have found, however, is the shirt should be just a titch smaller than one would usually wear. I wear mine ginormous to cover my extry large hiney, but when you're doing those poses, your shirt FLYS up and drowns your head and there you are with downwardfacingdog and tits shining and belly hanging.

    Ok. You have no belly to hang, so that's really just my personal experience. Plus, no one gives a crappola. Just go. I cannot imagine a better thing. I start back my class this thursday!

    Go. Streach. Enjoy. om.

    If you don't think the Maharishi has a few belly rolls, think again. Just dress sensibly, like the Maharishi do.
